10 Things I Always Buy at Dollar Tree!May 05, 2020
Hey guys, thanks for stopping by in today's video. I'm going to share with you 10
alwaysbuy at Dollar Tree. They know I'm a bargain hunter by nature and there are some
thingsI simply refuse to pay more for. of a
dollarfor so if this sounds interesting to you, keep watching my name is Teresa. I'm so glad you're here, let's get started. The first thing I
alwaysbuy at Dollar Tree is chip clips, now this is not it. groundbreaking information, but I want to show you why I have so many in my house and how I use them, obviously I use them in chips like everyone else, but I also use them inside items in boxes that have plastic liners, let me show you, so this is a box of pita chips that I have open right now and we won't be going through them anytime soon, so in addition to folding the bag down inside the box, I'm going to use a chip clip on the plastic bag inside this one that we do this with . cereal and with crackers and things like that that could go stale if we don't use them right away because we are a family of two, it's just my husband and I.
Whenever I use frozen vegetables packaged like this, I often make half. the package now, although it says you can steam them in the bag and I know that exists and it's very convenient if you're a family for us, I pour it into a microwave safe container and heat them that way. because I will save the rest of this package for another meal, if I make a whole package of peas like this we will eat them for 3 or 4 days in a row and I like to mix them up so instead I will cut the corners and pour about half the package , put it in a microwave safe container which is no big deal then I heat it that way and save the other half and then I'll use a chip clip where I cut the bag even though at any given time I may have 20 or even 30 chip clips in use in my house.
Sometimes I still have to resort to using office folders. I really feel that binder clips that are made of metal work better in the freezer because plastic can become brittle when frozen, so when I use clips on bags that go in the freezer, I deliberately look for binder clips and they also sell them in Dollar Tree. Next thing I always buy at Dollar Tree or what I'm going to call the hostess helpers when I arrive at an event I've been invited to and brought a shared plate. I don't want the hostess to have to struggle to accommodate what she brought, if that makes sense.
I also don't want the hostess to have to worry about whose plate it is and whose spoon the correct one is, so I try to keep it very simple and always make sure to bring my own serving spoon which needs to be left behind. Behind this is a metal one, it's not even plastic and it's fine for a picnic or as a side dish, this way the host or hostess can keep it or throw it away but don't have to worry about who it belongs to. and they also don't have to go through their own trips around the kitchen trying to find another spoon and, of course, any dish I take will be carried in a stackable container from the Dollar Tree that has a lid at the end of the party when the host or hostess is already they are tired.
I don't want them to have to look for plastic wrap in tin foil and figure out what they can stack on top of what the leftovers already have a place for, if there are leftovers I make some pretty good ones. dishes and sometimes there are no leftovers, you will notice that some of these containers are even brand name, some of these are from Betty Crocker. I would definitely use this main plate for macaroni salad, potato salad, the blue-lidded center plate that I have often had. my spinach and strawberry salad with sweet and sour dressing, this is a great size for sauce and then if you are making a raw you can put the vegetables on the flat and then put the sauce in this other thing that I buy frequently at Dollar Tree or these to-do lists.
I like to have one of these in my kitchen so I can keep a running list of what I need at the grocery store. Patterns are always changing. They have a lot. Some of the tablets even have magnets on the back so you can place them right on your refrigerator. I often find snacks at Dollar Tree that really fit nicely into our snack basket. Personally, I'm going to leave this a little tight. I'm more of an ER protein snacker and I love these little packets of any type of nut. I often find varieties and flavors of nuts at Dollar Tree that I don't see at the grocery store and for a
dollaryou can do it.
Don't get over this, I also found these fun mmm. I'm guessing this is a limited edition flavor but it's the pumpkin pie flavor so this is a full size box and this is going in our snack basket right after we film this video and Often next to the box register at the Dollar Tree, I find that these chocolate bars are not going to lie, I will probably hide them in the cheese drawer of the refrigerator, well, not to mention hide them exactly, but I will put them in the cheese drawer where it is very unlikely that my husband look.
While we're on the topic of food and kitchens, another thing I frequently buy at Dollar Tree are cake stands, tea towels, and tea towels, my kitchen is a working kitchen. I make things from scratch and it gets messy and I personally don't do that. I have towels in my house that can't be used. I think decorative towels are very pretty but they are not very practical for me because when I am cooking I am in like a hurricane. I remember when Dollar Tree started. came to our area and it was really exciting because who doesn't love a Dollar Tree?
And of course, I was drawn to the cooking section. The first thing I noticed about the dish towels was that they had patterns and colors that weren't any more attractive than anything I would choose. I just thought they looked really cheap and were probably there because they didn't sell well anywhere else. I still want the towels in the potholders and the dish towels I used to use. attractive and that combine with my kitchen. I know I'll wear them regularly and be hard on them, and knowing they come from the Dollar Tree, if they get stained or look ratty, I can throw them away last.
In a couple of years, Dollar Tree has really improved with the patterns that are available. I'm going to bring them closer to show you. This is the pot holder. It's a game of two. It has a burgundy background that matches my kitchen. Notice it has kind of a wine and cheese theme and they also have a dish towel that matches the theme and even the dish towels with the scrubbed side and again there's the same pattern so it's really nice that it's now at Dollar Tree You can buy cohesive sets Another category that I always shop at Dollar Tree is if I'm browsing the aisle and I see high-end beauty items that have landed at Dollar Tree for whatever reason, one of the items I have in my hand would cost at least three dollars. at the supermarket so I always keep an eye out for these special items, they come and go very quickly.
I'm going to zoom in just to show you a couple of examples last time I was at Dollar Tree. I found this pink Himalayan salt. It's a good finishing salt just to use lightly over an entire dish and I use it as a finishing salt. I don't cook with it much, but I sprinkle it lightly on salads. I love the flavor. and it looks very elegant. I can't believe I found a one pound bag of this for a dollar. This is another item that in a standard grocery store would normally be expensive or these sun dried tomatoes.
I came back to buy more. these and they were already finished. I also bought this brown rice tikka masala dish. These usually cost at least a couple of dollars at the supermarket and my husband and I love exotic cuisine. This next category was actually inspired by a collaboration video seen by two YouTubers who frequently post Dollar Tree tours. Both ladies have a knack for finding things at Dollar Tree that looked like they cost a lot more than a dollar. I have bills in my hands so I have to look down, but if you like Dollar Tree hauls.
I highly recommend you check out these two ladies, so we have Donna from Dona unboxes. I saw her show off some pillowcases the other day and was surprised that she found them at Dollar Tree. She only has one eye. and she finds the most unusual pieces. Donna is a lovely, charming, fun lady, and she has a knack for finding things that look like they cost a lot more than a dollar. You will really enjoy her channel and I will link it below the other youtuber. that Donna collaborated her name is Pam she is beautiful her channel name is 50+ beauty and lifestyle sure and Donna made a collaboration video where they made a full meal and table settings everything came from Dollar Tree and she made these Dollar Tree pieces look like they came from Nordstrom in her video, I'll link her channel below as well as the collaboration videos specifically I'm talking about so you can find them easily, plus to take tours of the dollar
Pam does makeup tutorials and she's so talented at it so if you want to watch makeup tutorials too her channel is two for one because she does amazing dollar
treetours and she does stunning makeup tutorials so make sure you check her out but I digress, they inspired me. about table settings in general, so let's say I'm hosting a dinner party and it's a particular theme, so maybe I don't want to use my usual dinnerware, maybe I want a particular color. I don't want to use paper plates. Dollar Tree is a great place to pick up stylish-looking cutlery.
I'm going to show you a pair that I have and have used for this purpose. I'm a big fan of white as it really lets the food take center stage. star of the show they had this dish. I'm going to call it an appetizer size plate and then they also had regular dinner plates. This could also easily be used as a salad plate, but this is a great way to add cutlery. for very little money because it's a dollar I have to comment on the quality of this particular wine glass some of the ones there are a little tatty to me this one feels like quality and I actually have a box of wine glasses that I bought for vacation at Kitchen Capers and I want to say that each glass ended up costing me two or three dollars.
This glass is very comparable to the ones I'm going to bring up to show you what I'm talking about, hopefully. You can see the thickness on the rim of this glass. It is very well done. The base is very resistant and secure. There are some wine glasses at Dollar Tree that I would overlook, but this one in particular if you see it and need extra wine. glasses that I highly recommend and while I'm tight I might as well show you this one. This would be so fun for a girls night with appetizers and wine and this is a stemless wine glass and it says this girl needs some wine and That's me, sometimes another category I always look at Dollar Tree first, our office supply items I can find cheaper there.
Yes, you can buy them as staples at Walmart, but a dollar is a better price. I found a couple of really great articles. I'm going to zoom in and show you that the first thing I found were these fun animal print file folders. You get three in a pack so they cost you about 33 cents each and here's the back so you have the tiger print. one side and the leopard print on the other. I think I mentioned before that I work in the pet food industry, so they definitely caught my eye and I actually bought every package they have, so I have seven packages of these here.
I plan to redo my entire file system because I think these are really nice. Another office supply item I already had on my list to find was a small dry erase board and dry erase markers every time you watch one of my videos. I have ten more planned and filmed in my mind. I found that I had index cards and pieces of paper everywhere because every time I have an idea I write it down and I decided I wanted to organize it on a whiteboard and be able to. I don't think I found both at Dollar Tree, so I was really happy to find them.
My Dollar Tree also had several desk accessories and it's actually made of metal. They came in various sizes and shapes for a variety of purposes and I looked at something very similar to this at Walmart and it was at least four dollars. I love these little ones for paper clips and push pins and things like that, another thing I always buy when I see them at Dollar Tree or these 3 packs of handbag tissues, these are Kleenex brand and I like to have a pack of these in my bag related to that. I will also buy cotton rounds at Dollar Tree, they are much more expensive even at Walmart and Target, so every time I find the quilts and I will come over to show them to you.
I buy several of those. I don't have a complete package to show you because I always have them in use. Over time I have learned that every time I see quilting. cotton rounds at Dollar Tree to buy multiple packs the padding helps remove eye makeup, eyeliner and mascara holds them in the right way and is still soft sometimes cotton roundsthe ones they have at Dollar Tree are soft I'm not I'm a big fan of those but every time I see a padded version I buy several packs another category I always shop at Dollar Tree and I'm sure many of you do too or gift bags, and especially the larger ones.
If the gift bag is for a children's party because many times they don't even look at them properly, but even if you go to a wedding or give it to someone with a special gift inside, the designs are increasingly more beautiful Dollar Tree I'm going to zoom in on this one to show you this .one in particular has a cute striped pattern and then says let's eat cake and this would be perfect for a birthday party. They had everything you could imagine, from weddings to birthdays and Christmas. I also collect tissue paper, many of the bags even have embellishments on them now.
They have a little shine like this. Do some of them have glitter and glitter and rhinestones? I prefer to put the money I would put into a higher cost bag on the gift itself and very rarely use a gift bag that doesn't come from Dollar Tree along the same lines whenever I need to sell a wrapper which is the clear wrapper that It is used to make baskets. I always buy that at Dollar Tree, this can be very expensive at craft stores and I find that stuff. This makes a nice and generous basket. I know the range from Dollar Tree to Dollar Tree varies a lot, so comment below if you've found a great item and what it is, maybe I need to go pick it up.
I have three or four. Dollar Tree stores about an hour into May and if I'm missing something great, of course I want to know, so comment below if there's anything I didn't show that you found to be a great value, so let's talk. about my outfit of the day, the earrings I have on these sparkly chandelier earrings that I recently bought when I did a Walmart versus Target haul and if you haven't seen that video, I'll try to remember to link it in the cards above. I kept these earrings from that haul because I thought they were just beautiful, they were very sparkly chandeliers, and they are remarkably lightweight.
I can't feel them in my ears. I have very thick hair, of course, it's shorter now, but it's still very thick, right? and these yes. Don't get lost in my hair so I love these, the top and shoes I'm wearing are from an upcoming Old Navy haul I'm working on. I went to my local Old Navy and they didn't have that much. from a selection, it's one of their smaller stores, so I want to go online and order some extra pieces so I can show you a good variety in that video, so it will appear at the top, it's a peasant style, usually when the top part has these threads I don't tie them because I don't like anything close to my neck and I'm realizing while watching other youtubers that a lot of you don't like things very close to your neck but in this particular For example, it is low enough that I can't feel it at all, so I went ahead and tied it up.
I like the Little House on the Prairie puffy sleeves on this and of course this one is in the warm color of the season, mustard. yellow I'm really curious to see if this top will work with one of my all-time favorite cardigans from Walmart. This is the ivory ribbed knit cardigan that I have featured in several of my Walmart purchases and I will try to remember to link a couple of them in the cards above, but you can see how this really brings out the cream color. In fact, I'm going to zoom in a little bit closer, so here's the cream duster right next to this top and I think the colors match really well, it's just a question of whether these little puffy sleeves from House on the Prairie will do Whether it looks bumpy or not and plus while I'm tight as usual I have a ton of bracelets on, it's my signature style. this is my newest piece and this one was on a clearance rack at Old Navy and the other two were, you guessed it, clearance pieces at Walmart.
I want to mention my nails for a moment, a lovely viewer mentioned that she had a favorite nail product that she thought she would enjoy and I went straight to Ulta and bought it. Let me show you that this is a Londontown brand product and it is the brightening nail concealer. I found the name very interesting. I must say she did my nails. It looks very bright and very white. I was devastated when my favorite product of all time, the bubble white that I showed off in another nail video, was recently discontinued and I'm not one to paint my nails with color because the minute it chips, it drives me crazy. so I just wanted something to enhance my natural nails even more and I want to say a big thank you to that subscriber.
I love this product while tight. I also want to show you these earrings and you can see that they are very articulated, it's not just one solid piece and that makes them really shine and have some movement. I just think they are very nice and they are one of the pieces that I saved from my goal compared to the Walmart jeans that I have or my favorite jeans at the moment and I continue to wear them, they are universal thread these are the shoes that I have learned from Old Navy and I have to say that historically I haven't had very good luck with shoes that have spikes, I know that they lengthen the leg and I know that with five four I should do everything I can to lengthen my legs correctly, but I don't usually find them comfortable.
I'm going to zoom in to show you a little bit of the details and you'll see more. about these in my Old Navy video coming up when it comes to shoe color the cognac color is the most versatile color it's my favorite color and these are the perfect color for me as I mentioned they have a pointed toe they have A side zipper for easy on and off. I like the kind of strap detail here, it gives it something special. It has a stacked heel that is the perfect height for me. I also like the decorative buckle on this side and then on the inside.
It is a thin layer of sheepskin that feels soft like baby blankets. What impressed me most about these particular booties is that the arch support hit me in the right place and I think that made a difference why they are more comfortable. Than other shoes I've tried, these were originally priced at $44.99. I bought them on sale for $25 and $0.99 and out of all the Old Navy swag you'll see below, these were the real winners for me. I felt like I wanted to show off an old navy shoe and that's what made me look at them in the first place, but I didn't expect to love them as much as I do.
